Rowan’s Law Day: Wednesday September 25, 2019
In 2013 Rowan Stringer, a 17 year old high school student from Ottawa, ON lost her life to Second Impact Syndrome; a brain injury caused by suffering a concussion before fully recovering from a previous concussion. In March 2018, the Ontario Government passed Rowan’s Law. As part of Rowan’s Law, was the proclamation of Rowan’s Day to occur on the last Wednesday of September each year, with this year occurring on September 25, 2019. The goal for Rowan’s day is to;
- Educate staff and students about Rowan and her story
- Share key messages and education about concussions
- Create dialogue about concussions
- Share resources about concussions and concussion prevention
As a school community, we will continue to engage in conversation around the importance of education and prevention of accidents while students are at school. We will also continue to follow the WCDSB Concussion protocol as a means of communication with parents about their child’s health while at school.
School Cash Online
